Cornerstone House Undergoes Major Renovation

Major renovation has been underway at Cornerstone House, the shelter and soup kitchen for the homeless, it has been announced.

“A comprehensive rehabilitation job has been progressing over the last few weeks which includes painting, tiling, electrical and plumbing among other works. The project will be completed in the coming days,” Prime Minister Allen Chastanet wrote on his official Facebook page Friday.

Chastanet disclosed that on May 23rd of this year, donations were made to 15 well deserving local charities from the proceeds of this year’s Prime Minister’s Independence Ball.

He said the Cornerstone Humanitarian Society was the biggest beneficiary of this year’s Independence Ball by receiving $250,000EC.

According to the PM, since the donation, work has been ongoing at the shelter to improve the living conditions for the vulnerable in the society who call it home.

“My gratitude to my amazing wife Raquel for all of her efforts as well as to Mr. John Peters for supervising this project for Free and to Mr. Richard Peterkin & Mr. Michael Gordon for serving as trustees of the funds,” he wrote on his Facebook page.

  1. Man at least there was a contribution given for them to start the works. When was the last time anything was done or given to cornerstone? All ya’ll like to do is look for the negative in everything if it was someone else who raised the funds and gave the donation then it would have been fine right? But no it’s this white man P.M and his wife who did it so let’s bash the hell out of them and the works done. That’s why we ain’t going far as a people. Way too much negativity in our hearts and minds.

  2. Hats of PM for the $250,000.00. But I’m thinking why couldn’t that money be used to reopen the old golden hope hospital. Isnt this not a government building? Or was it privately ownes I’m wondering?? These buildings could have been refurbished to served as a goverment shelter for the homeless/elderly who have not one to take care of them in sweet Saint Lucia.
